Jim's Rant For The Day. More On The Food Plant Fires.
Regarding the food plant fires, everybody has great points and I agree with all of them.
The truth is I haven’t got a clue as to what the truth is about the fires.
Lets assume they are all intentionally set. So now the question is who benefits from them?
According to the general rules of warfare, one never divulges their plan. That might mean if the bad guys intend to starve us out why would they do one plant every three days like a steady rhythm? Why not torch half of them in two days and get it done before anyone can react? That is what the Allies did in WWII when all planes on one day bombed every ball bearing plant in the German held countries. At the end of the war Hitler had a huge inventory of tanks and planes ready to be assembled but they had no ball bearings for the engines and wheels. So there they sat.
If there are 35,000 food plants why bother burning them at all? Why not just cut off all the flour, chickens, salt, seeds, rainwater, fertilizer and fuel oil. Oh wait, most of that list appears be be happening now. So maybe the bad guys are not torching 1/35,000th of the processing plants every three days. At this rate it will take 15 years to destroy half of the plants.
Being it is somewhat rhythmic, perhaps it is to sound like an old-time fire bell being rung in the community square to alert all inhabitants of the danger and need to act. That is all I am suggesting.
